Today, many real estate conversations center on housing prices and where they may be headed.

That is why we like the Home Price Expectation Survey.



Every quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real

estate experts and investment & market strategists about where they believe prices are headed

over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.


The results of their latest survey:

Home values will appreciate by 3.7% over the course of 2016, 3.3% in 2017 and 3.2% in the next two

years, and finally 3.1% in 2020 (as shown below). That means the average annual appreciation will

be 3.3% over the next 5 years.

The prediction for cumulative appreciation slowed slightly from 21.6% to 17.7% by 2020. The experts

making up the most bearish quartile of the survey still are projecting a cumulative appreciation of 10.9%.

Bottom Line

Individual opinions make headlines. We believe the survey is a fairer depiction of future values.
